River Statistics:
The good new: Sprauge Lake, Glacier Creek, Moraine and the upper Big T are all open and fishing. The Bad News: winter is still holding tight to the Park. Below freezing overnight with highs during the day of upper 40's are still keeping the park inaccessible for angling above 9,000 ft. Dry droppers or short leash nymph rigs will do you well. Small midges #18-24 dropped off a purple or pink squirmy wormy would be my setup. Midday will see midges coming off Sprauge. #20 Griffiths Gnat or Para Adams with a zebra midge #22 dropped off would be an ideal rig. Glacier and Moraine have been good when we see extended stints of warm weather. Per the weather of late, I would wait a week or two until heading up there. The Big T above the dam and through the town of Estes has been good. Yarn or palsa pinch on indicators above two beadheaed nymphs i.e. zebra, blue poison, 2 bit hooker, frenchies #16-20 all work well. We'll talk again the end of April.

The Ultimate Fly Fishing Report
Casting a fly in a tranquil mountain stream, feeling the tug on the line, and holding a beautiful rainbow trout makes us feel alive and intensely connected with nature. Fly fishing is our way of life and we are blessed with hundreds of nearby rivers and streams just a short distance away from Boulder. From the swift spring waters of the Clear Creek to the meandering bends of the South Platte, it's critical to consider fishing conditions in advance and prepare accordingly. We rely on our experienced guides who venture into the wild to let us know which rivers favor fly fishing, where fish are biting, and which fly patterns are most effective. Planning a successful fishing trip also requires knowledge of stream flows at various river points and an accurate weather forecast for a given destination. At Rocky Mountain Anglers, we are dedicated to providing all avid anglers with detailed and timely information about hatches, water, and weather conditions. So before you head out the door on your next fishing adventure, visit our web site to find valuable information that will prepare you for a successful trip. Have fun chasing after your next trophy trout and enjoy nature's beauty!The Rocky Mountain Anglers Crew
